Nokia Launches Development Tools For Ovi Service Platform
Finnish handset giant, Nokia yesterday announced that it is launching a set of new tools to make it easier for external partners to develop location based applications for its mobile internet service platform Ovi.
"Our goal is clear, and that is to make it effortless for our partners to create highly appealing, context-relevant applications," said Niklas Savander, Executive Vice President Services.
Nokia said it will progressively roll out new Application Program Interfaces, or APIs, for its services, with the Ovi Maps Player API and Ovi Navigation Player API, which will give access to mapping and navigation applications for its phones.
It said it is also launching the Ovi Software Development Kit Beta, which gives developers a set of tools to create applications for the web and the Symbian and Maemo operating systems, which are used in Nokia’s handsets.
Applications created with Ovi SDK and Ovi APIs will be available for consumers through Nokia’s Internet-based Ovi Store in 2010, the company said.
